Alright, so recently I have been undergoing another shift in expanding my music writing into another genre; and I have been feeling incredibly inspired by (rather trending) "inspirational" melodic hardcore and post-hardcore bands that have a positive message in their music. Some examples would be: Being As An Ocean, Capsize, Liferuiner, Hotel Books, Defeater, Silent Planet (who are more metalcore), etc. I just wanted to see if any of you theory whizzes would be willing to help educate me and explain to me what exactly is going on in this song that I'm attaching as an example. It might not be the best example, but this playthrough shows the sound that I am going for: melodic and dissonant at times, very "full" sounding chords, two guitars doing two different things, etc. And what do I need to understand and add/change in my writing process to begin working towards achieving this sound? Thanks in advance for anyone who contributes to this thread.
